OFFICIAL: Crabtree Foot Rehab Status

That's what I've been wondering too...so I have been looking at alot of Crabtree highlights on youtube to see what the analyst are raving about...

For one thing, Crabtree has very fluid hip movements. It seems he can change directions with his body and hips very smoothly and quickly. If you take a look at alot of his RAC, he seems to be able to change directions while maintaining good acceleration. Others may be 4.3 straight line speed but are very stiff and non very fluid when changing directions or adjusting for the ball when running routes or RAC. (i.e. Vernon) I've seen some Heyward Bey highlights on youtube and IMHO he's doesn't seem as fluid in his movements as Crabtree.

Another thing is Crabtree has SURE hands...he seems to catch anything thrown his way..

Vision and route running....Crabtree seems to know where to go and how to separate from his defenders. If you take a look at alot of his short goal line TDs catches...you see how he gains separation with short breaks...

The IT factor....Crabtree seems to have this....he kind of reminds me of a little Deon Sanders in terms of attitude...

I would say Crabtree reminds me of a Jerry Rice, not 4.3 speed, not strong like TO, but seems to catch everything thrown his way and has the ability to change directions with good route running....

my 2 cents...but the jury is still out.

We shall see...stay tuned!

I suppose from browsing the medical info that the reason the Niners have been extra, extra long with the Crabtree rehab is that his Jones fracture on his 5th metatarsal is a slow healing kind of break. It is slow healing because the doctors say that the long outside bone in cure receives a relatively low level of blood supply.

Hope that the extra caution on running will result in a total cure and no re-fracture. Go Crabs!

dito I would hate to see him hurt himself especially after all the money we will give him
The nice thing is that they in no way have to rush Crabtree into the game. They've got great depth - the problem will be who to cut - and they can afford to ease Crabtree into the lineup with designed plays.
STATUS UPDATE:

Today, Crabtree woke up with three ladies in his bed. He walked to the kitchen and had a glass of orange juice. He then walked to the couch, sat down, and started watching reruns of Steven Segal movies on Spike TV.

i am studying for my orthopaedic in training exam. i came across two articles related to crabtrees toe. basically says that if the xr doesnt show healing before he comes back they should wait or his toe may not heal. also may depend on type of screw they used. hope this is interesting to some of you.

Treatment failures after screw fixation of Jones fractures are reported to be infrequent. Between 1993 and 1999, 15 patients (mean age, 21.7 years) underwent cannulated screw fixation of a Jones fracture at our institution. There were six treatment failures: four refractures and two symptomatic nonunions. The mean time to full activity was 6.8 weeks for the patients with failure compared with 9 weeks for patients who did not have complications. Although all patients were asymptomatic and radiographically progressing to union before return to full activity, only one of six patients with failures had complete radiographic union, compared with six of seven patients with no complications. There was a higher proportion of elite athletes (division I or professional level) among the failure group (83%) compared with those without complications (11%). There were no significant differences in age, sex, screw diameter, use of bone graft, or age of fracture between patients with failures and those without complications. Return to full activity, especially among elite athletes, before complete radiographic union was predictive of failure. Even though intramedullary screw fixation offers advantages over nonoperative treatment, a significant risk of postoperative complications exists.

Failure of surgical management of fractures of the base of the fifth metatarsal distal to the tuberosity is uncommon. Only one such failure has been reported in the literature to date. The purpose of this article is to present the clinical course of 11 patients with failure of surgically managed jones fractures reviewed by the senior author (J.S.T.). Surgical management was complicated by delayed union in three patients, refracture in seven patients, and nonunion in one patient. The 11 procedures were divided between two established techniques: (1) intramedullary screw fixation (N = 6) and (2) inlaid corticocancellous bone graft (N = 5). In the six intramedullary fixation procedures, using other than a 4.5-mm ASIF malleolar screw for internal fixation correlated with failure. In the five inlaid bone graft procedures, undersized corticocancellous grafts and incomplete reaming of the medullary canal correlated with failure. Also, after both procedures, early return to vigorous physical activity is believed to have played a role in delayed union and refracture.
CRABTREES GUNNA LIGHT IT UP!!!!

I say he chops off his toe or he gets cut

Good thing they are holing him out til TC opens...
I just hope there are no setbacks, that he can come right into camp and be healthy and not get behind.
We should of drafted DHB!
